When this best-selling autobiography was originally released, readers were shocked: The Long Hard Road Out of Hell was the darkest, funniest, most controversial, and best-selling rock book of its time—and it became the template, both visually and narratively, for almost every rock book since. Marilyn Manson is not just a music icon, it turned out, but one of the best storytellers of his generation. Written with bestselling author Neil Strauss, beautifully designed with dozens of exclusive photographs, and modeled on Dante's Inferno, this edition of The Long Hard Road Out of Hell features a bonus chapter not in the hardcover. In the shocking and candid memoir, Manson takes readers from backstage to emergency rooms to jail cells, from the pit of despair to the top of the charts, and recounts his metamorphosis from a frightened Christian schoolboy into the most feared and revered music superstar in the country. Along the way, you'll hear what happens to fans—and celebrities—who dare to venture backstage with the one of the world's most dangerous rock stars. In the words of Elle magazine, the book "makes Madonna's infamous Sex seem downright wholesome in comparison."
Manson is the real symbol of individuality!
Crazy stories that made Manson who he is today! Also how music was his only outlet from being what everyone says he should of been or even isn't! Great book!
I got this book and it was amazingly well written. His style of writing was so vivid that you almost forgot it was a biography. I would find myself thinking 'Man that's crazy, what if that really happened' and then had to remind myself it was a biography and had to simply think 'man that's crazy' but even as crazy as some of the stuff seems, it was a really amazing book
4 stars because going into this book knowing nothing about him I still have much research to do on his many theories and beliefs
